The White House announced on Sunday that President Trump will be addressing the U.S. troops and the nation about the war in Afghanistan Monday night, as the president considers whether to take a new approach to the conflict that has been going on for 16 years.

Trump will “provide an update on the path forward for America’s engagement in Afghanistan and South Asia” at 9 p.m. ET, the White House said. The president is scheduled to speak from Fort Myer in Arlington, Virginia.

On Saturday the president hinted that he and top U.S. generals have agreed on a new strategy for America’s longest war, after meeting on Friday at the presidential Camp David retreat.

“Important day spent at Camp David with our very talented Generals and military leaders,” Trump tweeted. “Many decisions made, including on Afghanistan.”

Since taking office, Trump has considered several options for Afghanistan, from sending in additional troops to walking away from the war, an unlikely move considering U.S. concerns about thwarting Islamic terrorism.

Fox News reports that solutions for Afghanistan, which include ending the longest war in American history, eluded the Obama administration and have not come easily to Trump.

The challenge is largely how to step up the fight against terrorism in a way that advances peace prospects — in large part because the Taliban have gained ground and show no interest in peace negotiations.

Trump met at the presidential retreat, in nearby western Maryland, with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, top intelligence agency officials and other top military and diplomatic aides.

Mattis said earlier this week the administration was “very close” to finalizing a new approach, after the defense secretary presented the president with “several” options.

So, we will see what the plan is- let’s hope that it involves blowing the living hell out of all these Islamic scumbags.


God Bless.
